Christmas Presents for £15 & Under + WIW - All Blue

marks and spencer perfectly polished nail treatment set


Morning ladies & happy Sunday.  Seeing as we're now in December, which I can't quite get my head around as this year has gone scarily fast!  I thought it perfect timing for share my top Christmas presents/stocking fillers that are £15 or under.  

I'm going to sound old now but I can remember the time when you could get a nice present for under £10, perhaps if you were lucky even around the £5 mark.  These days of course it's hard to find a present that looks substantial & is something you're happy to give without spending a lot more but one store I always know will have some great ideas & inspiration is Marks & Spencer.  So for this month's collaboration I thought it perfect timing to feature my top picks, hopefully something for most people that you'll be looking to buy for & all £15 or under.  After all Christmas is such an expensive time of year that if we can make the pennies go further all the better.

So let's get started with some beauty treats like the above nail polish treatment set.  Most ladies will enjoy a little pamper & there's nothing nicer than freshly painted nails to lift the winter blues so this would make a great gift.
